Reconstructing the Deconstructed Seersucker

Not Ready To Wear…Yet

My goal was to have these ready to wear on Father’s Day 2016. But, as I was reconstructing the deconstructing I added in a few additional design elements. And am not done yet. For Today, I’m just posting some pix. When they’re complete, I’ll give the story and the deets on the how to’s on the DIY. Happy Father’s Day!

The Man Made from Cool

Jack & Jones and Christopher Walken

The suave and super cool Christopher Walken brings a peculiar yet very fun to watch vibe to revitalize  the Jack & Jones brand. Watch him in Made from Cool,  5 different short films as he makes clothes in the most manly, coolest and fascinating ways possible. He runs the gambit of a fashion designer utilizing the following 5 skills:  Tailoring, Sewing, Knitting, Cutting up fabric (my favorite) and ends the series by Shearing a sheep with his bare hands.

Christopher would be called a Renaissance man in the main stream media, I’d just call him the Coolest. See him in one of the biggest Dance Videos of all time as he moves and grooves his way through Fat Boy Slim’s Weapon of Choice. These shoes were made for Walken’ and lots of Dancin’.
